Molecular, Structural & Cellular Microbiology

Bacterial diseases remain a great threat, especially as antibiotic resistance increases, and studying the mechanisms of virulence and antibiotic resistance is essential to understand and counteract pathogenic bacteria. Such studies present great opportunities to understand complex pathways and machineries, and we exploit these using combinations of microbial genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology and structural biology approaches.
